INFORMATION ABOUT THE NORTH CAROLINA REGISTER AND ADMINISTRATIVE CODE 



NORTH CAROLINA REGISTER 

The North Carolina Register is published monthly and 
contains information relating to agency, executive, legislative and 
judicial actions required by or affecting Chapter 150B of the 
General Statutes. All proposed administrative rules and amend- 
ments filed under Chapter 150B must be published in the Register. 
The Register will typically comprise approximately one hundred 
pages per issue of legal text. 

State law requires that a copy of each issue be provided free 
of charge to each county in the state and to various state officials 
and institutions. The North Carolina Register is available by 
yearly subscription at a cost of ninety-five dollars ($95.00) for 
12 issues. 

Requests for subscription to the North Carolina Register should 
be directed to the Office of Administrative Hearings, P. O. 
Drawer 11666, Raleigh, N. C. 27604, Attn: Subscriptions. 



ADOPTION, AMENDMENT, AND REPEAL OF RULES 

An agency intending to adopt, amend, or repeal a rule must 
first publish notice of the proposed action in the North Carolina 
Register. The notice must include a reference to the Statutory 
Authority for the action; the time and place of the public hearing 
and a statement of how public comments may be submitted to 
the agency either at the hearing or otherwise; the text of the 
proposed rule or amendment; and the proposed effective date. 

The Director of the Office of Administrative Hearings has 
authority to publish a summary, rather than the full text, of any 
amendment which is considered to be too lengthy. In such case, 
the full text of the rule containing the proposed amendment will 
be available for public inspection at the Rules Division of the 
Office of Administrative Hearings and at the office of the 
promulgating agency. 

Following publication of the proposal in the North Carolina 
Register, at least 60 days must elapse before the agency may take 
action on the proposed adoption, amendment or repeal. 

When final action is taken, the promulgating agency must file 
any adopted or amended rule with the Office of Administrative 
Hearings. If it differs substantially from the proposed form 
published as part of the public notice, the adopted version will 
again be published in the North Carolina Register. 

A rule, or amended rule, cannot become effective earlier than 
the first day of the second calendar month after the adoption is 
filed. 

Proposed action on rules may be withdrawn by the pro- 
mulgating agency at any time before final action is taken by the 
agency. 



TEMPORARY RULES 

Under certain conditions of an emergency nature, some 
agencies may issue temporary rules. A temporary rule becomes 
effective when adopted and remains in effect for the period 
specified in the rule or 120 days, whichever is less. An agency 
adopting a temporary rule must begin normal rule-making 
procedures on the permanent rule at the same time the temporary 
rule is adopted. 



NORTH CAROLINA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE 

The North Carolina Administrative Code (NCAC) is a 
compilation and index of the administrative rules of 25 state 
agencies and 38 occupational licensing boards. The NCAC 
comprises approximately 15,000 letter size, single spaced pages 
of material of which approximately 35?^ is changed annually. 
Compilation and publication of the NCAC is mandated by G.S. 
150B-63(b). 

The Code is divided into Titles and Chapters. Each state agency 
is assigned a separate title which is further broken down by 
chapters. Title 21 is designated for occupational licensing boards. 

The NCAC is available in two formats. 

( 1 ) In looseleaf pages at a minimum cost of two dollars and 
50 cents ($2.50) for 10 pages or less, plus fifteen cents 
($0.15) per each additional page. 

(2) On microfiche. The microfiche edition is revised semi- 
annually (March and October) and can be purchased for 
forty dollars ($40.00) per edition. Due to the volume 
of the Code, the complete copy can only be purchased on 
microfiche. The NCAC on microfiche is updated 
monthly by publication of a "List of Rules Affected" 
which sets out rules filed the previous month, the action 
taken, and the effective date of the change. This list is 
published in the North Carolina Register. 

Requests for looseleaf pages of rules or the NCAC on 
microfiche should be directed to the Office of Administrative 
Hearings. 



NOTE 

The foregoing is a generalized statement of the procedures to 
be followed. For specific statutory language, it is suggested that 
Articles 2 and 5 of Chapter 150B of the General Statutes by 
examined carefully.

devices and a functional systems 
interlock that will prevent the 
backflow of pesticide or 
pesticide-water mixtures into 
water supplies or the backflow 
of water or pesticide-water 
mi.xtures into pesticide supplies 
during times of irrigation 
system failure or equipment 
shutdown. If a public water 
system is being utilized as the 
water source, the chemigation 
system shall not be connected 
directly to it . See 
requirements in Rule .2003 of 
this Section. 

(b) Pesticides shall not be 
injected into an irrigation 
system on the suction side of 
the irrigation pump. 

(c) Such safety devices or 
valves shall be installed 
between (1) the irrigation 



system pump discliargc and the 
point of pesticide injection 
into tlie iriigntion system, and 
(2) the point of pesticide 
injection into tlie irrigation 
system and tfic pesticide tank or 
container in accordance with 
Rule .2002(d). 

(d) Such systems shall 
effectively meet the following 
criteria : 

( 1 ) double clioclc valves 

shall be located betv;een the 
irrigation pump discharge 
and tlic point of pesticide 
injection into the 
irrigation pipeline. These 
valves, wlien installed, 
shall be on a horizontal 
plane and level. A 
deviation of not more than 
10 degrees from the 
horizontal shall be set . 

(2) an inspection port shall 
be located between the 
irrigation pump discharge 
and the mainline check 
valves. In many cases, the 
vacuum relief valve 
connection can serve as the 
inspection port. 

(3) a vacuum relief valve 
shall be located on the top 
of the horizontal irrigation 
pipeline between the 
discliarge side of the 
irrigation pump and the 
inlet side of the double 
check valves. The vacuum 
relief valve shall have an 
orifice size of at least Z/^ 
inch for a 4-inch diameter 
irrigation pipe. The 
orifice size shall increase 
proportionally to an 
increase in irrigaiton pipe 
diameter . 

(4) an automatic low 
pressure drain shall be 
located on the bottom of the 
horizontal irrigation 
pipeline between the 
discharge side of the 
irrigation pump and the 
inlet side of the double 
check valves. Such device 
shall be level and have an 
orifice size of at least 3/4 
inch for a 4-inch diameter 
irrigation pipe. The 
orifice size shall increase 
proportionally to an 
increase in irrigation pipe 
diameter. The drain shall 
not e.xtend beyond the inside 
surface of the bottom of the 
irrigation pipeline and 
shall be at least two inches 
above grade. The automatic 
low pressure drain shall 
discharge at least 20 feet 
from any water supply. The 
discharge from the drain 
shall be controlled to

prevent the drainage from 
reentering the water supply. 

(5) a flow interrupter 
device shall be located in 
the pesticide supply line 
between the pesticide 
injection unit and the 
pesticide supply tank or 
container. A normally 
closed solenoid-operated 
valve or other similar 
device is an acceptable 
method to positively prevent 
flow of pesticide or water 
in either direction during 
pesticide injection system 
failure or shutdown. 

(6) a check valve shall 

be located on the pesticide 
injection line between the 
point of pesticide injection 
into the irrigation system 
and the pesticide injection 
unit to prevent the overflow 
of the pesticide supply tank 
or container . 

(7) a functional systems 
interlock shall be provided. 
If interruption of the 
irrigation water flow 
occurs, the interlock must, 
at a minimum, cause the 
shutdown of the pesticide 
injection unit. If the 
irrigation pump and 
pesticide injection unit are 
at different sites, a low 
pressure cutoff, located 
near the point of pesticide 
injection into tlie 
irrigation system, could be 
electrically connected to 
the pesticide injection unit 
to provide for its shutdown 
in the event of low water 
pressure . 

.2003 PROHIBITION OF 
CONNECTION TO A 
PUBLIC WATER SYSTEM 

(a) An irrigation system 
used for pesticide 
application shall not be 
connected directly to a 
public water system.

chemigation, the system 
operator shall inspect the 
antisiphon devices and the 
functional systems interlock 
to ensure that they are 
functioning properly. 

(c) If modifications or 
changes in design, 
technology, irrigation 
practices or other similar 
reasons warrant the use or 
placement of equipment in 
lieu of that specified 
herein, the Pesticide Board 
may allow for such changes 
in advance of use, provided 
protection to the water 
supply is at least equal to 
tliat provided by the 
equipment , or placement 
thereof, required in this 
Regulat ion .

program 



1 13 



NORTH CAROLINA REGISTER 



(a) Participants should be 
informed in advance of 
objectives, prerequisites, 
experience level, content, 
advance preparation, 
teaching methods, and CPE 
contact hour s credit . 
N ote: In order for potential 

pa rt i c ipgnt s to most 

effectively p3 r.n t)ieir CPE, 
the salient features of any 
program should be disclosed. 



Acco rdingly, 



brochures 



other announcements should be 
a\'ailnble well in advance of 



each program 



and 



should 



conta in 



clear 



statement; 



concerning 



prerequisites 



object ives , 



(if 



any ) 



experience level , program 

content , the nature and extent 
of advance preparation, the 
teaching method(s) to be used, 
and the amount of credit to be 
given . 



(b) Instructors or 

discussion leaders should 
be qualified with respect 
to program content and 
teaching method used. 
Note : The instructor is a 
key ingredient in the 
learning process in any 
group program. Therefore, 
it is imperative that 
sponsors exercise great 
care in selectng qualified 
instructors for all group 

programs . A gualified 

instructor is one wlio is 
capable , tlirougli 



background , 



educat ion , 



training , 



and/or 



experience, of providing 
an environment conducive 
to learning. He should be 
competent in the subject 
iriatter and skilled in the 
use of the appropriate 

teaching method( s ) . 

Although instructors are 
selected with great care, 
sponsors should evaluate 
their performance at the 
conclusion of each program 

to determine their 

suitability for continuing 
to serve as instructors in 
the future . 
(c) Program sponsors 

should encourage 
participation only by 
individuals with 

appropriate e duca t ional 
educat ion and/or 
experience . 
Note: So that 



part 


icipant 


s can expect 


CPE 


programs to 


increase 


their 


pro 


f essional 


comp 


etence , 


this 


standard 


encourages 


sponsors to 


urge 


onlv 


those 


who have 


the 


appropr 


iate 


education 



and/or 



p articipate , 
"educat ion 



experience 



to 



The term 
and/or 



e xperience' 



in 



the 



standard a l so implies that 

part icipant s will be 

ex pected to complete any 
advance preparation. A n 
step in 



cssent ial 



encouraging 



advance 



preparat ion is timely 

distribution of program 



materials . 



Although 



implemontinq this standard 
may be difficult, sponsors 
s hould make a significan t 
effort to comply with th e 
spirit of the standard by 
encouraging (1) enrollment 

onlv by el igible 

participants, C2) timely 
distribution of materials, 
and (5) completion of any 
advanced preparation. 
(d) The number of 

participants and physical 
facilities should be 
consistent with the 
teaching method(s) 

specified . 

Note : The learning 

environment is affected by 
the number of participants 
and by the quality of the 
physical facilities . 



Sponsors 



have 



obligation to pay serious 
attention to these two 

factors . T)ie maximum 

number of participants for 
a case-oriented discussion 

program, for example . 

should be considerably 
less than for a lecture 

program . The seating 

arrangenent is also very 

important . For a 

discussion presentation, 
learning is enhanced if 
seating is arranged so 

that participants can 

easily see and converse 
with each other. If small 



group 



sessions 



integral part of 



the 



program 



appropriate 



format , 



facilities 



should be available to 

encourage communication 

within a small group. In 

effect , class size , 

quality of facilities, and 
seating arrangements are 
integral and important 
aspects of the educational 
environment and should be 
carefully controlled. 
(e) Programs should 

include some means of 
evaluating quality. 
Note ^ Evaluations should 
be solicited from both 
part icipants and 



instructors . 



The

(3) Standards for program 
measurement : 

(a) Courses and programs 
must have adequate record 
keeping. Fifty minutes of 
instruction will be 
accepted as one hour of 
course work. College 
credit course work shall 
be accepted at the rate of 
15 hours for each semester 
hour and 10 hours for each 
quarter hour, and college 
non-credit course work 
shall bo accepted on a 
basis equivalent to the 
actual contact hours . 
Course work in which the 
student receives 

Continuing Education Units 
(CEU) will be allowed one 
CPE hour for each 
one-tenth CEU awarded. 
Note: The purpose of this 
standard is to develop 



uniformity 



m 



the 



measuromont 



of 



CPE 



activity. A contact hou r 

is 50 min utes of 

continuous participation 
in a group program. U nder 
this stand ard , credit is 
granted only for full 



contact hours . 



For 



example, a group progra m 
lasting 100 minutes woul d 
count for 2 hours ; 



between 50 and 100 minutes 

would count for only 1 

hour. A one-day program 

consists of 8 contact 



hours . 



For continuous 



conferences 



and 



convent ions , 



when 



individual segcments are 
loss than 50 minutes, the 
sum of the segments should 
be considered one total 
program . 



five 



For example, 



30-minute 



p resentations would equal 
150 minutes and should be 
coiinted as 3 contact 
hours . 

Sponsors are encouraged to 
monitor group programs in 
order to accurately assign 
tlie appropriate number of 

credit hours for 

participants who arrive 
late or leave before a 
program is completed. 

Since credit is not 

allowed for preparation 
time for group programs, 
it should not be granted 
for the equivalent time in 

s elf-study programs . 

Self-study programs sliould 
be pre-testod to determine 
average completion time. 
One-half of the average 
completion time is the 
reccrnmendod credit to be 

allowed . For example , a 

s elf-study program that 

takes an average of 800 

m inutes to complete is 

roco m nended for 8 "contact 

hours" of credit. 

(b) Credi t fxrr te aching &PS

up ttj 3 t ii i ias t+te a c t ual

f or a specific course v; i t h in 

OTr« y uar . When an 

instructor or discussion 
leader serves at a program 

for which part ic ipants 

receive CPE credit and at a 
level that increases his or 
her professional competence, 
credit should be given for 
pre p aration and presentation 
time measured in terms of 



contact hours , 



Credit ma 



be claimed for 



spec if ic 



course one time only withi n 
one calendar year. CPE 
credit for instructors, 
speakers and discussion 
leaders will be limited to 
one half of the annual 
requirement .

the instructor should 

receive no credit unless he 
can demonstrate that the 
subject matter involved was 

changed sufficiently to

significant 



additional 



studv 



research . 

In addition, the 



maximum 



credit for preparation and 
presentation should not exceed 
50 percent of the total CPE 



credit

(b) 
(5) Marinas. Marinas 

are defined as any publicly 
or privately owned dock, 
basin, or wet boat storage 
facility constructed to 
accommodate more than 10 
boats, and providing any of 
the following services: 
permanent or transient 
docking space; dry storage; 
fueling facilities, haul-out 



facilities 
services .

of the preceding 



fact 



except 



the 



limited 



services. Expansion of 
existing facilities shall 
also comply with these 
standards for all 
development other than 
maintenance and repair 
necessary to maintain 
previous service levels. 
(A) Marinas shall be 

sited in non-wetland areas 
or in deep waters (areas 
not requiring dredging) 
and shall not disturb 
valuable shallow water, 
submerged aquatic 

vegetation, and wetland 
habitats, except for 
dredging necessary for 
access to high-ground 
sites. The following four 
alternatives for siting 
marinas are listed in 
order of pi'eference for 
the least damaging 
alternative; marina 
projects shall be designed 
to have the highest of 
these four priorities that 
is deemed feasible by the 
permit letting agency: 
(i) an upland 

basin site requiring no 
alteration of wetland or 
estuarinc habitat and 
providing adequate 
flushing by tidal or 



NORTH CAROLINA REGISTER 



122 



wind generated water 
circulation ; 

(ii) an upland basin 

site requiring dredging 
for access when the 
necessary dredging and 
operation of the marina 
will not result in the 
significant degradation 
of existing fishery, 
shellfish, or wetland 
resources and the basin 
design shall provide 
adequate flushing by 
tidal or wind generated 
water circulation; 

(ill) an open water site 

located outside a 
primary nursery area 
which utilizes piers or 
docks rather than 
channels or canals to 
reach deeper water; and 

(iv) an open water 

marina requiring 

excavation of no 
intertidal habitat, and 
no dredging greater than 
the depth of the 
connecting channel. 

(B) Marinas which 

require dredging shall not 
be located in primary 
nursery areas nor in areas 
which require dredging 
through primary nursery 
areas for access. 
Maintenance dredging in 
primary nursery areas for 
existing marinas will be 
considered on a 
case-by-case basis. 

(C) To minimize coverage 

of public waters by docks 
and moored vessels, dry 
storage marinas shall be 
used where feasible. 

(D) Marinas to be 
developed in waters 
subject to public trust 
rights (other than those 
created by dredging upland 
basins or canals) for the 
purpose of providing 
docking for residential 
developments shall be 
allowed no more than 27 
sq. ft. of public trust 
waters for every one lin. 
ft. of shoreline adjacent 
to these public trust 
waters for construction of 
docks and mooring 
facilities. The 27 sq. 
ft. allocation shall not 
apply to fairway areas 
between parallel piers or 
any portion of tiie pier 
used only for access from 
land to the docking 
spaces . 

(E) To protect water 
quality of shellfishing 
areas marinas shall not bo 



located within areas 
documented as a natural 
shellfish bed or adjacent 
to such areas if shellfish 
jiarvest closure is 
anticipated to result from 
the marina operation. A 
natural shellfish bed is 
defined in 15 NCAC 3C 
.0302 as an area of public 
bottom when ten bushels or 
more of shellfish per acre 
are found to be growing. 
This Rule shall not apply 
to waters considered by 
the state to be 
permanently closed to the 
taking of shellfish. 

(F) Marinas shall not be 
located without written 
consent from the 
controlling parties in 
areas of submerged lands 
which have been leased 
from tlie state or deeded 
by the state . 

(G) Marina basins shall 

be designed to promote 
flushing through the 
following design criteria: 
(i) the basin and 

channel depths shall 
gradually increase 
toward open water and 
shall never be deeper 
than the waters to which 
they connect; and 
(ii) v;hen possible, 

an opening shall be 
provided at opposite 
ends of the basin to 
establish f low-tl^rougli 
circulation . 
(H) Marinas shall be 

designed to minimize 
adverse effects on 
navigation and public use 
of waters while allowing 
the applicant adequate 
access to deep v/aters. 
(I) Marinas shall be 

located and constructed so 
as to avoid adverse 
impacts on navigation 
througliout all federally 
maintained channels and 
tlieir immediate 

boundaries. This includes 
mooring sites (permanent 
or temporary), speed or 
traffic reductions, or any 
other device, either 
physical or regulatory, 
that may cause a federally 
maintained cliannel to bo 
restricted . 
(J) Open water marinas 

shall bo not enclosed 
within breakwaters that 
preclude circulation 
sufficient to maintain 
water (]uality. 
(K) Marinas whicli 



123 



NORTH CAROLINA REGISTER 



require dicdoiiig sliall 
provide acceptable areas 
to accommodate disposal 
needs foi' future 
maintenance dredging. 
Proof of tlie ability to 
truck the r.poil material 
from t}ie marina site to an 
acceptable disposal area 
will be acceptable. 

(L) Marina desicrn 

shall comply with all 
applicable requirements 
for management of 
stormwatcr runoff. 

(M) Marinas shall post 

a notice prohibiting the 
discharge of aiiy waste 
from })oat toilets and 
explaining the 

availability of 

information on local 
pump-out services. 

(N) Boat maintenance 

areas must be designed so 
that all scraping, 
sandblasting, and painting 
will be done over dry land 
v;ith adequate containment 
devices to prevent entry 
of waste materials into 
adjacent waters. 

(0) All marinas sliall 

comply with all applicable 
standards for docks and 
piers, bulkheadingi 
dredging and spoil 
disposal . 

(P) All applications 

for marinas shall be 
reviewed to determine 
their potential impact and 
compliance with applicable 
standards. Such review 
shall consider the 
cumulative impacts of 
marina development. 

(Q) Replacement of 

existing marinas to 
maintain previous service 
levels shall bo allowed 
provided that the 
proceeding rules are 
complied with to the 
maximum extent possible, 
vjith due consideration 
being given to replacement 
costs, service needs, etc.
